Thank you for keeping us all up to date with your work on this project! Have you considered kitting it once the bugs are all worked out? If you don't wish to kit it yourself, companies such as Sirius Rocketry (I have no financial stake in them--I'm just a very satisfied customer of theirs!) produce licensed kits of other people's rocket designs.
